I Forge Iron

"The Carpenter's Tool Chest"


Recommended Posts

209 pages

Despite the title this is a superb reference for blacksmiths/tool makers. Has many MANY drawings of older tools! It covers the development of tools from the stone age up to the modern industrial era... so most all the history of handmade tools. No step by step forging directions here... but lots of inspirational shapes and discussions of the development of the detailed features of many many types of hand tools. This book is one of my most treasured and reveals the amazing beauty of even ancient tool designs! I am sure that it is out of print but WELL worth searching and watching for!
